Great news, SAO fans! Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris is available now in Southeast Asia (including the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and Indonesia). The game was originally set to release back in May 22, but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
To celebrate the game’s release, Bandai Namco released the game’s official launch trailer:
Aliciziation Lycoris is the latest video game entry in the Sword Art Online franchise. The game’s premise is described by Bandai Namco as:
“Following the storyline from the anime, SWORD ART ONLINE Alicization Lycoris puts players right inside the “Alicization” arc. Players will play through the original story from the first part of the anime “Alicization” to the scenario where the final boss Administrator appears for a battle. After the final battle with the Administrator, the game original storyline “Alicization Lycoris” develops.
In “Alicization Lycoris”, Kirito, Alice, and the game’s main heroine, Medina, are shown fighting against powerful enemies. New terrain and places that did not appear in anime are added, as well as items for strengthening equipment.”
Alcization Lycoris’ Day-1 retail version in SEA comes with a free SAO Alicization Lycoris badge that’s available while stocks last. There are five different badge designs in total.
Meanwhile, both the game’s Day-1 physical and digital versions come with a DLC which rewards players with 4 original costumes from the Costume Design Contest.
